I've been playing Ellen DeGeneres's new trivia app for the iPad, Know or Go ($1.99). It's based on the trivia game she plays with contestants on her show where if you get the answer wrong you drop through a hole on the ground. It's hilarious to watch if you haven't seen it (video below). The app is definitely a fun time. Ellen's voice makes funny comments throughout the entire game, and the trivia questions are wide-ranging and varied.
The creator of the video, Victor Petit, was looking for a way to make his resume stand out and get an internship at a communications agency. Says Petit, “I tried to create a CV that would enable me to express myself vocally as soon as they read the paper version. The combination of a sheet of paper and a QR code felt like the best way to reach that goal.” Just in case you're wondering, he got the job.

April 22nd is Earth Day, and I had the opportunity to interview John Shegerian, CEO of Electronic Recyclers International, the largest e-waste recycler in the United States. The company has the most popular recycling app on the App Store and it recently won 2011 Best of Green Award from Treehugger.com. My Recycle List app (Free), let’s you quickly find recycling locations in the U.S. and Canada for a great variety of products.
Dress the Royals ($.99), is an app that lets you customize the wardrobe of the Royal Family to get them ready for the Royal Wedding. It's a nice little game for kids, as the wardrobe selections for each member of the family ranges from serious to very wacky. I found the interphase to be abit confusing at times, and I imagine If I can't figure it out, neither will kids. Nevertheless, it's an app that's not meant to be taken very seriously.
